(* with a wink and a nod to Eren for a new series suggestion!)
Alright, well maybe sitting here all day is a bit unrealistic. But seriously, hours were spent yesterday right there - knitting, eating, reading, talking, delegating, watching the baby move, and negotiating the sibling squabbles. With camera at my side (um, I sent someone to get it), some things I saw:
Ezra joined me for some Presidential chatter. He's quite enamored with the new book Our White House (an amazing resource, by the way), and worked on his sketch of all of the presidents, stopping at Jimmy Carter when he ran out of room on the page. Hmn...
Calvin stopped by to tell me his dream lineup for Friday night's Red Sox Playoff game. He also drew his "Top Three Dream Plays" that he's hoping will happen. Grand slams, bases loaded with Ortiz up at bat, crazy ninth inning catches by Veritek to save the game - you know, all that stuff. Baseball, I'm only so excited about, but manifesting your dreams? - I like it.
I watched Adelaide read the entirety of Seven Silly Eaters to Banjo, with a 'swaddling blanket' so as to assure his "sitting" for the length of the book. He obliged. Only for her.
And I did some knitting. A lot of knitting.
There was also a marathon crazy eights session, a cartwheel-off-the-couch contest, a glue stick love fest, and a tea party.
Good times, I tell you. Good, boring, ordinary times. Right from where I sat.
